The Pittsburgh shooter and his posts online have sparked a conversation about the role the internet plays in normalizing extremist views. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk to an expert from Baldwin Wallace University who studies the spread of misinformation on the internet, and discuss online communities of hate. Then, what lessons have we learned from Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein, 200 years after its publication? Join us.
